well, let's all take a deep breath. >> it's friday. >> and be grateful that it's friday. what kind of weather do we have to look forward to? >> we will start this weekend cool. and then we have a big warm up coming sunday, monday, tuesday if we play our cards just right our mother nature does, might wind up with a 70-degree temperature in there somewhere. >> awesomes in even recovered to 66 on sunday afternoon. very good. well, you know something, we were in good shape on this side of the lake. these clouds were just seeing the back edge of them. these have been raining, sleeting and snowing on the
other side of the lake in our north central indipped, lake snow belt, parts of indiana gotten in on this. and michigan as well. this follows our own ice pellets yesterday and some cases with a couple of flashes of lightning. quite an interesting pattern. the u.s. weather regime is just amazing. we had 100 degrees at san diego yesterday. hottest temperature ever there so late in the season and yet on the other side of the country, snow will whiten the appalachian mountains from north carolina and north to west virginia and we sit between in the cool air which is producing these lake clouds and see where the heaviest of them are occurring. they go into parts of porter and laporte county and bareon county and michigan. we are getting the instability clouds to develop. air aloft is cool. rate at which temperatures are dropped is quite sharp. so as afternoon goes on and what heating we get today, this is the coolest day in april and low 40s. nonetheless the day time heating will produce the cumulus clouds and we might get a spotty shower.
look at the sunshine out to the west of us. we got a nice weekend on the way. no major rains and this set up lake effect set up will break down. you noticed and this is well depicted here. the green is liquid. the pink area where you get ice pellets and snow mix, it's snowing. so we have the lake warming the air and turning the precipitation to rain. melts the snowflakes as they come out of the clouds and then as you move away from the lake you get ice pellets and snowflakes to come down in those areas. there is the rain. changes to some ice pellets and then to snowflakes. this is our model forecast. we are up to 11:30 tonight still lake effect going. but we think the whole set up will begin to break down tomorrow and we ought to get some accumulation to this moisture over here in parts of michigan. not in chicago. showers that we see today will be quite
scattered. yesterday. for this weird u.s. weather pattern. highly amplified flow with 150- mile-per-hour wind crashing in from canada over the eastern u.s. while this dome of warmth is expected to move eastward. the warmth that warmed california yesterday, 96 in l.a., 99 at riverside yesterday, that will drift eastward and replace the chilly air that will be in tomorrow. temperatures in some cases have not gotten out of the 30s. that's the first time we have done that since april and you can see this cool air that has come into the country. but it's warming -- warmer today as you get up into the northwest territories of canada than it is here in chicago. how is that for a reversal of the normal routine. there are temperatures. there are the winds blowing across the area and we calculate windchills there in the 20s here in chicago. 20 at marquette right now for the coolest around the midway -- mid west and double digit temperature losses compared to yesterday. warm up is underway out to the
west and that will come eastward. could be amount to 20-degree temperature increase between today's 42 and the 70 that we may see by monday and 66 expected on sunday before we get there. northwest winds of 17. humidity 43%. there are 14 states with frost and freeze advisories. these include northern florida. you can see the low dew points down there that gives you an idea where the night time temperatures are going to go. and there is the sprawling high pressure that's come out of canada with south winds starting to blow on the plains to warm things up. but the north winds blowing to the east and that is to the eastern u.s. so that warm air is pressing eastward but won't be here for a couple more days in the chicago area. one thing for sure there is not much moisture going on. that continues a trend that we have seen all through the month of october and early november. cold air this ten day forecast shows it lifting out. here comes the prod of warmer
tuesday next week. then a weather system will travel up between that warm air and the new developing cool air surge that comes in late next week and the following weekend. look how expansive that is supposed to be. so we have some chilly air on the way. after this warm up that's coming in early in the week. and of course the big story of steve and allison have reported, coming out of the caribbean, that's haiti right there. the hurricane is moving up just to the west of haiti producing driving rains and flooding in that country which was devastated by an earthquake back in january. 300,000 people lost their lives at that time. since then about 1.3 million people are living in tents. and we were warned to move to safer shelter. the problem is there is no safer shelter in many cases. they have nowhere to go. quite a tragedy unfolding in haiti. this afternoon partly sunny. blustery. coldest temperatures since april with a high temperature
of 42. and a north, northwest wind at 12 to 24 with gusts. partly cloudy. blustery, chilly tonight. lake effect in michigan and northwest indiana from porter county eastward will be winding down slowly with time. the last of it will be going into the early morning hours tomorrow and then breaking down all together. but a low of 27 at o'hare. but as low as 20 in our western suburbs and 34 at chicago's lakefront. partly sunny, chilly tomorrow. high of 48. but sunday brings sunshine filtered through high clouds. windy and milder conditions. and high up to 66 degrees in the afternoon. and maybe 70 on monday and tuesday which would be remarkable. >> i call that a gift. >> it is a gift. it's like late indian summer here. >> and i will take it. >> thanks. >> and this is the weekend when you change your clocks. >> you do. >> chicago fire department would like for you to think about your smoke alarm battery as well.
time to change your clock. change your battery program. on sunday morning it's the end of daylight savings time when the clocks roll back an hour at 2:00 a.m. for central time. you might be a good idea to check that smoke alarm battery as well. i will call you and wake you up at 2:00 a.m. and remind you to turn your clock back. >> so we lose daylight. >> that's autumn. >> here is our trivia question today. i think steve and tom will get this one. which board game was introduced on this day in 1935 by parker brothers. was it scrabble? risk? or monopoly? what do you think? the answer is still ahead on the wgn midday news and your live illinois lottery drawing is next. >> we will get together on tom's home on marvins gardens. nobody in my family ever had a heart attack.
